POWERMAD

POWERMAD

Legendary metal label, Combat Records, began their Boot Camp series in the mid-80’s as an affordable way to test the market for newer bands of interest. Over twenty years later we at Divebomb Records, who were highly influenced by the original series, decided to pick up the torch and kick start our own brand of the Bootcamp Series.

Due to its overwhelming popularity the series has now reached its 25th release and we thought of no better way to celebrate this milestone than by reissuing the original Combat Records Boot Camp compilation CD featuring Maryland’s HAVE MERCY, New York’s NAPALM and Minnesota’s POWERMAD.

Loaded with band supplied photos, vintage magazine articles as well as new essay featuring excerpts of a discussion we had with Combat Boot Camp founder, Steve Sinclair, Bootcamp Origins is everything we ever hoped it would be and represents exactly what Divebomb Bootcamp hopes to achieve with each release.

Divebomb Records Bootcamp Series is unearthing lost sessions, unreleased albums and long forgotten demos by unsung heroes of this scene’s past. These are cult bands for cult fans. Are you ready to join the army?
